REPORT OF THE BOARD OF SELECTMEN 

To The Citizen's of Cohasset: 

The year 1973 was an active one for the Board of Selectmen. It convened in 
50 regular and special meetings of the Board and its members spent countless 
hours on day-to-day operation of the Department. They also attended various 
hearings and meetings of other Town boards and committees in addition to reg- 
ional, County and State meetings of concern to the Town. 

Problems relative to the energy crisis were paramount during the latter part of 
the year. The Town has been fortunate to receive gasoline allotments equal to 
last year's consumption and fuel oil supplies have been ample with implementa- 
tion of economy measures. In both cases, however, costs have escalated rapidly 
and will probably continue to do so. To alleviate future problems, it will be nec- 
essary to provide centralized storage and distribution facilities to keep gasoline 
costs at a minimum. All departments have instituted energy-saving measures 
which will be periodically reviewed to discourage relaxation of them. A fuel 
emergency home assistance board was appointed consisting of the local Red Cross 
and Civil Defense directors. It was delegated the responsibihty for emergency al- 
lotments of home heating oil and for temporary living quarters should the need 
exist. 

Federal Government revenue-sharing funds in the amount of $106,630. were 
received during the year. So far, these monies have been applied in a manner 
which, in effect, reduces our tax rate. However, one should be reminded that the 
revenue sharing concept eUminates some programs previously funded through 
special grants and this practice excludes funds from all such programs. The Town 
has no central agency for obtaining Federal grants but its department heads, 
boards and committees are to be commended for ensuring that Cohasset receives 
its fair share. 

Special projects voted at the last annual Town Meeting and under the jurisdic- 
tion of the Selectmen were completed as follows: 

Article 27, Refurbishing Milliken football field. 
Article 28, Demolishing stadium at Milliken Field 
Article 41, Rebuilding sea-wall on Margin Street. 

Article 40 to rebuild the sea-wall at Lawrence Wharf on Border Street has 
been temporarily delayed because bids exceeded available funds. Article 30 to re- 
pair Cat Dam on Nichols Road has also been delayed awaiting financial assistance 
not previously contemplated. 

Last summer, an emergency existed with the water control structure of Strait's 
Pond. The Towns of Hull and Hingham requested that we share equally in repair- 
ing the tidal gates to control insects and odors. Through the efforts of our office, 
assisted by Rep. George C, (Chet) Young, the amounts were assigned to respective 
County budgets then in committee, with negligible cost to the Town. 

The Board elected to participate in the Federally sponsored TOPICS program. 

20 



This will result in an expert traffic and safety survey of all highways with financial 
assistance for making recommended changes. 

Youth Corps and Emergency Employment (EEA) programs were continued 
again this year but the latter will be discontinued by the Federal Government at 
fiscal year-end. The Youth Corps has been expanded to a year-round activity and 
currently has eight qualified participants. During 1973 alone, we received $1 1,937. 
non-contributory services from these programs. With a member of our Board, on 
the Quincy (Regional) Ancillary Manpower Planning Board, we are able to keep 
informed on all such programs open to us. 

Negotiations to purchase the Penn Central right-of-way have continued 
throughout the year. An offer was made but proceedings have been slow due pri- 
marily to the uncertainty of the whole rail transportation picture. 

Spurred by unfavorable pubUcity relative to our Town ambulance service, the 
Selectmen, assisted by interested members of the Police and Fire Departments, 
are conducting an in-depth study of alternatives open to the Town. Specific re- 
commendations concerning ambulance service will be presented at the next annual 
Town Meeting. 

The Board of Selectmen extends its sincere appreciation to all Townspeople, 
Town employees, boards and committees for their cooperation and assistance 
during the past year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Arthur L. Clark, Chairman 
Mary Jeanette Murray 
Henry W. Ainslie, Jr.

DIVISION B 

RULES AND REGULATIONS TO ESTABLISH SEWER BENEFIT ASSESS- 
MENTS, SEWER CONNECTION CHARGES AND SEWER SERVICE CHAR- 
GES FOR THE SEWER COMMISSION, TOWN OF COHASSET, COMMON- 
WEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS. 

Be it ordained and enacted by the Board of Sewer Commissioners of the 
Town of Cohasset, Commonwealth of Massachusetts, as follows: 

ARTICLE B-1 

ASSESSMENTS, CONNECTION, AND SEWER SERVICE CHARGES 

SECTION 1-1. BENEFIT ASSESSMENTS. Benefits accruing to prop- 
erties as the result of the construction of systems of sewers and/or systems of 
sewerage and sewage disposal shall be assessed as follows: 

(a) Each parcel of land which abuts a public highway or a highway which by 

41 



its use is generally believed to be a public highway or a right-of-way, and in 
which there has been constructed a pubhc sanitary sewer, shall be assessed 
eight dollars ($8.00) per Uneal front foot; provided however, no such parcel 
of land shall be assessed less than eight hundred dollars ($800.00). Whenever 
such a parcel of land contains a building or buildings that are, in the opinion 
of the Commissioners, potential sewer connections in the rear of a building or 
buildings fronting on a highway, a front foot assessment of a minimum assess- 
ment or eight hundred dollars ($800.00) shall be levied as hereinbefore set 
forth and in addition an assessment of eight hundred dollars ($800.00) shall be 
levied for each such potential sewer connection in the rear. 

(b) Each parcel of land which does not abut a public highway or right-of- 
way but which, in the opinion of the Commissioners, is a potential sewer con- 
nection shall be assessed eight hundred dollars ($800.00). If any such parcel 
of land contains more than one building, each building which is a potential 
sewer connection in excess of one basic building shall be assessed eight hun- 
dred dollars ($800.00) in addition to the primary assessment of eight hundred 
dollars ($800.00). 

(c) Each parcel of land abutting two or more highways or rights-of-way in 
which there has been constructed a public sanitary sewer shall be assessed 
eight dollars ($8.00) per lineal front foot along the address side which abuts 
the pubhc highways or rights-of-way as above described. Each other side of 
said parcel which abuts a public highway or right-of-way in which a public 
sanitary sewer has been constructed shall be assessed eight dollars ($8.00) for 
each front foot in excess of one hundred feet; provided, however, no such par- 
cel of land shall be assessed less than eight hundred dollars ($800.00). 

(d) Each interior parcel of land, not a corner parcel, having frontage on 
two or more public highways or rights-of-way in which there has been con- 
structed a public sanitary sewer shall be assessed eight dollars ($8.00) per 
lineal front foot or a minimum assessment of eight hundred dollars ($800.00) 
whichever is greater on each side which abuts a public highway or right-of-way 
as above described. The Commission is hereby specifically empowered to 
grant relief by directing that only a single assessment be levied in such cases 
where the insufficient depth of a particular parcel makes more than a single 
connection to the sewer impracticable and a double assessment inequitable. 

(e) Special assessments shall be levied against commercial and industrial 
properties on the basis on benefit received, as determined by the Sewer Com- 
missioners. 

SECTION 1-2. SUSPENSION OF ASSESSMENT. Each parcel of land which 
abuts a public highway or right-of-way in which there has been constructed a 
public sanitary sewer, and which, in the opinion of the Commission, may not 
be serviced by the sanitary sewer system because of topographical or other 
engineering factors, may have its assessment suspended upon approval of the 
Commission. As herein used "Topographical or other engineering factors" re- 
fers to the capacity of the property to be serviced by means of a gravity flow 
connection, but does not exclude the use of a forced flow to enter the sanitary 
sewer. 

42 



SECTION 1-3. ALLOWANCES. The Commission may make reasonable 
allowances whenever the particular size, shape or location of any property 
shall require an allowance in keeping with the fundamental principle that no 
assessment shall be made against any property in excess of the special benefit 
to accrue to such property. 

SECTION 1-4. EXCEPTIONS. All properties exempt from general prop- 
erty taxation under the provisions of the Massachusetts General Laws by virtue 
of their ownership by governmental, religious, charitable, or non-profit organi- 
zations shall be exempt from the benefit assessment provisions of Division B, 
Article B-1, Section 1-1 of these Rules and Regulations. 

SECTION 1-5. PAYMENT. Benefit assessments shall be payable by the 
parcel owner in not more than twenty (20) approximately equal annual instal-

due and payable with each annual installment. Any assessment may be paid in 
full at any time. 

SECTION 1-6. SEWER BUILDING CONNECTION CHARGES. The charge 
for building connections when such services are made available by the Town, 
shall be the cost to the Town for labor, equipment and materials, plus 20% of 
sewer department labor for overhead, plus 15% of material costs for handling 
of materials supplied by the sewer department. The owner shall have the right 
to contract with a private approved contractor to perform this work in strict 
accordance with the Sewer Commission's Rules and Regulations. 

SECTION 1-7. SEWER SERVICE CHARGES. On a quarterly basis, there

industrial building connected to the sanitary sewer system. The following 
charges shall apply to the preceding structures as defined by the Assessor for 
tax assessment purposes.

shall be charged with a minimum of 10,000 gallons of sewage per quarter as- 
sociated with this minimum. All in excess of 10,000 gallons of sewage per 
quarter shall be assessed at the rate of seventy-five (75) cents per thousand 
gallons. 

COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL RATE. The volume of sewage 
from commercial and industrial buildings shall be taken as one hundred per- 
cent (100%) of the water consumption for the same quarter, utilizing the water

quarter of year shall be charged with a minimum of 10,000 gallons of sewage 
per quarter associated with this minimum. All in excess of 10,000 gallons of

tabhshed within this ordinance shall be governed as to payment and disposition of 
payments as follows. 

All apportioned assessments shall be due and payable on July 1 annually. If

year, shall be paid. If any annual installment of the benefit assessment charge 
shall be unpaid thirty (30) days after such installment was due and payable, the 
remaining unpaid balance of the total assessment and deferred interest charges is

Upon payment of all delinquent installments and deferred interest charges and 
accrued interest due to date of payment, interest will accrue on the balance of 
the assessment if the next Annual installment is unpaid thirty (30 days after 
having become due and payable. All payments rendered shall be applied to pay- 
ment of the deferred interest charges, and the remainder, if any, applied to the 
installment due. Unpaid assessments shall be liened and foreclosed upon in ac- 
cordance with the general statutes governing the collection of property taxes.

REPORT OF THE COHASSET DRUG EDUCATION COMMITTEE 

(C.D.E.C.) 

During the past year the Cohasset Drug Education Committee, through the 
vehicle of the drop-in center. The City, has been able to move beyond the 
limitations of a "drug center" toward a more broadly based and therefore more 
effective "youth center." This has allowed the Director and the twelve volunteer 
staff members to deal with those concerns which precede and aggravate drug 
abuse. Programs have also been developed which facihtate healthy development 
as well as a positive use of time and energies. 

The City is a unique program for Cohasset in many respects. First, it is the 
only program that provides an assortment of professional and non-professional 
services at no cost. This allows all of our townspeople to utilize the resources 
regardless of the family's income. Second, only a community based program can 
identify the specific needs of our community and respond with programs to 
meet our unique needs. 

Non-professional services which have been initiated over the past year include: 

(a) a bicycle repair workshop where our youth can learn how to repair their bikes, 

(b) a Friday evening coffeehouse with live entertainment, (c) a chess club, (d) 
periodic dances for our youth, and (e) streetwork designed to reach those who do 
not visit the center. These programs comprise the outreach component of The 
City and have been partially responsible for the more than tripling of young 
people that we have had contact with as compared to the previous year. More 
than 300 different people have used the center this past year, i.e., approximately 
25% of the 12 to 18 year old population. 

Professional services have been rendered to more than 100 individuals with the 
majority of these people seeking individual counseling. Between March 1, 1973 
and December 31, 1973, 431 hours were spent in counseling helping both youth 
and adults resolve their personal conflicts. The range of personal conflicts is only 
hinted at in our crisis categories which are listed below: 



Job placement for 13 individuals 
Suicide counseling for 2 individuals 
V. D. test and treatment for 8 
Runaway counseling for 7 



70 



Legal aid for 2 

Medical referral for 2 

Problem pregnancy counseling for 3 

Drug emergencies (overdoses, freak-outs, etc.) for 3 

Psychiatric referral for 3 

Family therapy for 2 families 

Other concerns cover a gamut from conflicts at home and school to marriage 
problems, drug problems, and dating concerns. In addition, January and February 
saw the beginning of three adolescent counseling groups. 

In an attempt to maximize the delivery of services within town, the Director 
has established strong communication lines with other services, e.g., school guid- 
ance department, clergy, Cohasset Community Center, Social Service League, 
and other area programs. This has resulted in referrals between agencies, con- 
sultation, and overall increased efficiency. 

And finally, this year the Drug Education Committee was successful in re- 
ceiving a grant for more than $2,300 from the Department of Mental Health 
based on the merits of The City's program. This was facilitated by successfully 
meeting the requirements for licensing as a treatment facility by the Department 
of Mental Health. The effect for the Cohasset taxpayer is to stretch the local tax 
dollar through state funds resulting in a more effective program. The Committee 
has also soHcited over $3,000 in private contributions to help finance the opera- 
tional costs of The City. 

In short, this has been an extremely busy and prosperous year in which The 
City has established itself as the center for our teens. It is with a sense of pride 
and accomplishment that we look back on this past year and we hope you share 
these feelings.

REPORT OF THE COUNCIL ON AGING 

The Cohasset Council on Aging meets regularly on the second Monday of 
each month at 3:30 p.m. in the Unitarian Parish House. Council meetings are 
concerned with the planning and coordination of services for the elder citizens 
of the town. Council meetings are always open to the pubhc. 

The Council continues to pubHsh a monthly newsletter, "Senior Vista" which 

72 



reaches a little over two hundred addresses with information regarding social, 
educational and recreational activities for senior citizens. Any resident of Co- 
hasset desiring to receive the "Vista" may have his name added to the mailing 
list by calling the Unitarian Parish House (383-1 105) weekday mornings. 

Two new services have been added to the programs available to senior 
citizens this past year. First, each Thursday that school is in session we are 
serving a hot lunch for senior citizens at the Unitarian Parish House. Thanks to 
the special efforts of Mrs. Patricia Wunschel and her staff these meals are made 
possible through the assistance of the School Department at a cost of $.60 a 
serving. Around 15 to 20 persons have been participating in the program as of 
this writing. Usually, a movie or some other entertainment follows the meal. 
Secondly, through the iniative and personnel of the Social Service League we 
now have a "Keep Well" clinic scheduled along with the regular monthly meet- 
ings of the 60-Plus Club at the Parish House on the third Tuesday of the month. 
At the clinic the town nurse conducts certain routine tests and gives helpful ad- 
vice on matters of health care and nutrition. 

We are very grateful to Mrs. Yolanda Baccari who has attended several of our 
meetings through the year providing us with a much needed liason with the Co- 
hasset Housing Authority. We are also appreciative of the efforts and interest of 
the Social Service League in setting up the "Keep Well" cHnic, in conducting a 
phone survey of the needs of the elderly in the town and in maintaining the 
"Meals on Wheels" program for those who need meals brought to their homes. 

Our greatest challenge remains to estabHsh some program to meet the trans- 
portation needs of our elder citizens especially in light of the energy crisis and 
the increasing cost of maintaining and operating private automobiles.

REPORT OF THE PLANNING BOARD - 1973 

During the past year the Planning Board had a very active and fruitful year. 
The Board did not witness a large number of subdivisions of any major propor- 
tions which required approval under the subdivision control law. However, the 
Planning Board was required by the Building Inspector's office to review three 
major proposals for the Cohasset landscape. They were the Black Rock House 
site proposal, the motel proposal submitted by Mr. Carzis and the recreational 
facilities of the Cohasset Swim and Recreation Trust. The Board's review of 
these proposals was not a function of the law but rather an attempt to unify de- 
partments relative to the whole Cohasset landscape. 

After a year of research, typing and editing, the Planning Board approved an 
amended edition of the Land Subdivision Rules and Regulations of the Planning 
Board. The town's subdivision Rules and Regulations had not been updated 
since 1957. The some sixty pages of the new edition defines in greater detail the 
subdivision design criteria and accounts for some of the recent development tech- 
nology relative to road design and drainage. 



The Planning Board has hired the Planning Consultants of Richardson and 
Kalishes to create a new base map for the town. The Town presently has no 
base map which shows the newer ways or where any reliable scale is found. The 
present map used by the town was completed in the early sixties by Gilbert 
Tower, Honorary Town Engineer. When completed the new base map will be 
able to be used by all town departments for purposes of plotting data and various 
plans such as sewer, water and drainage systems. The Planning Board shall impose 
a zoning layout on the base map and the Conservation Commission shall be using 
the new base map for study purposes and plotting conservation areas and flood 
plain study. 

The Planning Board in conjunction with the Conservation Commission and 
the Board of Selectmen have made application to H.U.D. for Federal Flood In- 
surance under the Flood Insurance Program. This program shall permit residents 
and businesses located in flood prone areas to receive flood insurance at sub- 
sidized rates. 

The Planning Board anticipates bringing several recommendations before 
Town meeting for approval relative to town zoning. We are presently studying 
the sign regulations in an effort to update them and strengthen them. We are 
reviewing our Cluster Zoning regulation of two years ago. We are also reviewing 
the entire Zoning By-Law for purposes of complete revision and reprinting. This 
review is being completed in conjunction with the development of the new base 
map. There have been several conflicts noted within the text of the Zoning By- 
Law and it is important for these to be cleared up as soon as possible.

REPORT OF THE CONSERVATION COMMISSION 

1973 has been a busy year for the Conservation Commission. Considerable 
time has been spent with regard to the Mass. Wetlands Protection Act, Chapter 
131, Section 40 which went into effect October 1972. Already the Commission 
has held three hearings under the Act, and members have been occupied writing 
guidehnes for our town which will simplify procedures for appHcants. Anyone 
who intends to fill or alter any wetlands should get copies of the guidelines from 
the Selectmen's office or from a member of the Conservation Commission. 

In June, the Commission undertook to underwrite for one year from conser- 
vation funds an experimental elm tree treatment program. The work was done 
over the summer months by Lowden, Inc., a reputable concern in the Northeast 
area, on approximately ten trees in the Common. It must be emphasized that 
there is no proven cure for the Dutch elm disease and the results of the treatment 
will not be known until the trees leaf out again in spring 1974. We were rapidly 
losing our precious town elms, however, and the Commission felt it was impor- 
tant to take immediate steps to try to save them. 

The Commission has engaged the services of Richardson & Kalishes, Environ- 
mental and Resource Planners to prepare maps and supportive data, including a 
soils map inventory, topographic base map, flood plain and watershed district 
map, all badly needed by the Town. This program will be completed in 1974. 

A gift of twenty-seven acres of land by Ambrose Realty Trust is acknowledged 

77 



with appreciation by the Commission. The land abutts the raihoad right of way 
off Sohier Street. We hope this action by one concerned group will encourage 
other citizens to consider gifts of land and/or easements for conservation pur- 
poses through the medium of legal provisions in a will or by outright deed. 

The Selectmen with the aid of the Planning Board and Conservation Com- 
mission applied to HUD for the Federal Flood Insurance Program. If accepted, 
Cohasset residents and businesses in flood prone areas may purchase flood in- 
surance at reduced rates. 

The Commission has long been concerned with the bad litter situation in the 
pubHc areas of our town. In an effort to help remedy the situation in one area 
for one winter season, the Commission has arranged for weekly pickup of trash 
from barrels at Sandy Beach. The Sandy Beach Association has traditionally 
taken care of beach litter during beach season, end of May through September, 
but Htter has not only rendered the area unseenly but also dangerous (broken 
glass, etc.) in other months of the year. This is the principal reason why we took 
on this task on a temporary basis until other arrangements can be worked out. 

After many years of dedicated service. Herb Marsh resigned from the Com- 
mission. John F. Elliott was appointed by the Selectmen to fill the vacancy. John 
R. Williams and Whitney Scott were appointed Consultants by members of the 
Commission.

ANNUAL REPORT - HARBOR DEPARTMENT 

I hereby submit the annual report of the Harbor Department for the fiscal 
year 1973 to 1974. 

The failure of boat owners to heed the regulations of the harbor pertaining to 
increasing the size of their boats without waiving notice with this office, has re- 
sulted in the loss of mooring space for previous mooring holders. This has also 
caused much confusion and dissatisfaction amongst all boat owners. A person who 
places a boat of larger size on a mooring is liable for all and any damages done to 
other boats. 

The attempt of placing racks and floats bow and stern has worked out very 
well and will eventually handle all boats under 20 feet. 

Due to the increased flow of boats entering the harbor there will be a much 
stricter enforcement of regulations pertaining to speed and the abuse of tying of 

78 



boats to town floats over the alloted time. 

The department has requested maintenance dredging in many areas of the 
harbor. This means I will need the full support of all concerned citizens to make 
this come about. 

In closing I wish to thank all who assisted the department this past year, with 
co-operation and many efforts. 

Sincerely, 

Harry H. Ritter, Harbormaster 



REPORT TO THE BOARD OF TREE AND PARK COMMISSIONERS 

1973 was a busy year for the Tree and Park Department. The Elm Street 
Project with the reconstruction of the road meant most of the trees which were 
diseased and dying had to be removed. We managed to save some of the smaller 
trees by moving them with heavy equipment during the construction of the road. 
After the road was finished we planted 19 trees of 5 varieties. 

Tree planting was done on roadside where large trees had been removed, on 
some of our parks and also 4 cherry trees around the pond in the Common. 

The spray program was kept to a minimum this year with no heavy outbreak 
of insects or disease. 

The Tree Department spent a lot of time this summer working with Lowden, 
Inc. on the Ceratocide Experiment Program for a cure for Dutch Elm Disease. 
This project was sponsored by the Conservation Commission. Ten Elm trees were 
treated on and around the common. The result from this treatment will not be 
known until summer of 1974. 

Another project completed was the Milliken Field Football area rebuih by a 
local contractor. The Tree and Park Department installed an underground water- 
ing system for the field while under construction. 

Pruning and tree removal goes on all year round when the department is not on 
a special project. 

The Park Department also maintains all the school grounds as well as our parks 
and common and pond. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Bradley G. Martin 

Tree and Park Superintendent

ANNUAL REPORT OF OPERATIONS 
SOUTH SHORE MOSQUITO CONTROL PROJECT 1973 

Submitted herewith is a report of the South Shore Mosquito Control Project's 
activities for the period November 1, 1972 to October 31, 1973. 

The Project is a year round operation, a community cooperative effort to 
abate mosquitoes in the City of Quincy and Towns of Braintree, Cohasset, Dux- 
bury, Bingham, Hull, Marshfield, Norwell, Scituate and Weymouth. These com- 
munities comprise an area in excess of 172 square miles that inhabits a popula- 
tion of 250,000. 

The project came into being in 1953, was set up under Massachusetts General 
Law, Chapter 252, pertaining to mosquito control and Chapter 112, Acts of 1931, 
pertaining to salt marsh ditch maintenance and performs under these statutes. 

The Project's activities can be classed under three distinct methods of mos- 
quito abating: Source Reduction, Larvaciding and Adulticiding. 

A. Source Reduction: a planned water management program, whereby 
stagnant and brackish water is made to drain off, made to flow, or in some in- 
stances, to impound an area above a mosquito breeding depth. In source reduction, 
the following works were accomplished: 

1. 319,170 feet of mud, silt, sand and shale was excavated in salt 
marsh areas. 

2. 7,725 feet of fill was excavated in the construction of new 
drainage ditches in both salt marsh and inland areas. 

3. 10,000 feet of cleaning sand, gravel, growth, and other obstruc- 
tions from brooks and streams of the inlands. 

4. 1 2,900 feet of small trees, brush and other growth was cut and 
removed to allow access and facilitate mosquito operations. 

5. 2,375 man hours was spent in source reduction works. 

The Project operates two crawler tractors of special design for soft terrain. 
One, an International 500 with backhoe and winch; the other an Oliver 0C4D 
with backhoe and scavel blade, the latter to be turned in toward purchase of a 
new model International 500-C. The delivery and operation of this machine is 
anticipated in early 1974. 

B. Larvaciding: the application of a chemical insecticide to the waters 
actually having mosquito larvae present. In the larvaciding operation, the fol- 
lowing works were accomplished: 

1. 4,322 gallons of insecticide was applied by ground operations 
with back pack and power sprayers to treat approximately 
8,000 acres. 

2. 1,383 gallons of insecticide was applied to treat 21,489 storm 
catch basins. 

3. 2,750 gallons of insecticide was applied from both helicopter 
and fixed wing aircraft to treat 1 1,000 acres of woodland 



80 



I' 



swamps and marginal pools to abate the spring hatch mosquito, 
Aedes Canadensis, the vector of dog heartworm. 

4. 1,625 man hours was spent in larvaciding works. 

5. 805 man hours was spent pre and post checking mosquito larvae 
sites to plan and evaluate spray operations. 

C. Adulticiding: the appHcation of a chemical insecticide, in an atomized 
form or fog , to the air space and resting sites of the adult or flying mosquito. 
Adulticiding is done by power equipment from vehicles, back pack sprayers, on 
foot, and in limited amounts from aircraft. In adulticiding operations, the fol- 
lowing works were accomplished: 

1. 20,717 gallons of insecticide was applied to treat an approximate 
44,000 acres. 

2. 2,200 acres were treated by aircraft to the critical Encephalitis areas. 

3. 2,71 1 man hours was spent in adulticiding works. The emphasis on 
type of mosquito abatement is determined by what the weather and 
biological conditions a season might bring. This past seasons main 
effort was put in adulticiding, the reason being this area had a very 
mild open winter followed by a warm, earlier than usual spring, ac- 
companied by heavy rains that continued on into midsummer that 
produced a bumper mosquito population. This past season exper- 
ienced an outbreak of Eastern Equine Encephalitis, in both the birds 
and horses. Ahhough not as serious as past epidemics, it did cover a 
much wider area including the states of New Hampshire and Rhode 
Island, as well as the whole eastern part of Massachusetts, including 
the islands. These two conditions gave the Project's phone it's 
busiest season on record. 1,684 calls for service were received. These 
all were answered. 

All insecticides used by the Project are extensively tested and approved be- 
fore being registered by the U.S.D.A. and the Massachusetts D.P.H. Pesticide 
Board for mosquito abatement operations. 

These insecticides are: 

A. Malathion - for adulticiding at rates of .02 to .05 pound active to acre. 

B. Abate - for larvaciding at rates of .03 to .04 pound active to acre. 

C. Fenthion - for larvacing in polluted waters and for limited adulticiding 
at rates of .03 to .06 pounds active to acre. 

The label's recommended, formulation, dosage and safety precautions, are 
abided by at all times. 

^ All Project's personnel are duly licensed for the safe handling of pesticides. 

The Project wishes to acknowledge all assistance it has received from both 
Public Works Departments and officials.

REPORT OF THE WIRE DEPARTMENT 

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen 

I hereby submit my report of the Wire Department for the year 1973. 

The year began with the fire alarm having to be completely done over on Elm 
Street, due to Chapter 90 work. 

The moving of all poles made it irrtpossible to use the existing wires. A trans- 
fer was needed to buy cable to run the length of Elm Street to complete the pro- 
ject. 

Other areas of Town rewired included, the Cove, center of Town, all of Hull 
Street, Lamberts Lane, Reservoir Road, and part of Highland Avenue. Four new 
boxes were installed in these areas to give better protection. Fire boxes along 
Atlantic Avenue were replaced due to salt water damage and age. Cross arms and 
hardware were replaced where needed and most all fire boxes were painted. Test- 
ing of boxes is being done on a weekly basis. 

Town Owned Buildings 

All repairs of electrical equipment and wiring was done by this department. 

Wire Inspection 

All work done by electrical contractors was inspected by the department and 
the fees turned into the Town Accountant. 

I wish to express my thanks to the Honorable Board of Selectmen, to all Town 
officials, and to the men who worked with me. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Stephen F. Wigmore 
Superintendent of Wires 



REPORT OF THE GOVERNMENT ISLAND COMMITTEE 

This Committee, pursuant to the vote and appropriation at the March meeting 
of 1972, completed the repairs to the wall at the Border Street entrance early in 
1973 as planned. Members of the Committee and volunteers have worked in the 
restoration and cleaning of the grassy areas of the site and there will be a need for 
more of this work this spring. The Tree and Park Department have been most 
helpful in clearing and removing dead trees and weeds in the wooded section of 
the site and their assistance is noted and appreciated. 

Meetings were held at times during the summer concerning the parking pro- 
blem which was getting out of control. It was recommended that the Selectmen 
develop regulations to meet the weekend needs of the Townspeople at the Island. 
Steps were taken to discourage indiscriminate parking by non-townsmen, particu- 
larly on weekends. Because of the increased pressure on the limited parking facil- 

82 



ity now available it is quite apparent that action must be taken in the near future 
to increase the parking area. 

As a result of further study by the Committee and in order to control the use 
of the proposed parking facility this Committee feels that a single access parking 
lot can be constructed in the area Easterly of the present buildings and Southerly 
of the present parking lot turnaround. 

Recommendations as to the means required to accompHsh this will be made 
at Town Meeting. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Edwin A. Young, Chairman

COHASSET HOUSING AUTHORITY 

The year 1973 began as one filled with delays and frustrations in our efforts to 
see the long planned Housing for the Elderly into construction. However, through 
persistent and time consuming efforts, our planning and construction difficulties 
have been solved and we are now able to anticipate a summer dedication of a 
completed project of 64 units. 

AppHcations for residency are being processed consistent with D.C.A. require- 
ments. 

Very truly yours, 

Yolanda Baccari

YEAR 

1973 
1953 



As in the past years the preventive maintenance program has been carried on, 
with the apparatus getting semi-annual check-ups aimed at preventing a major 
mechanical failure. Tune ups and adjustments were made by the department 
mechanic as well as oil changes, filters and lubrication of the chassis of the various 
pieces of motorized equipment. 

The 1 ,000 GPM pumper authorized at the Town Meeting of 1972 is at an ad- 
vanced stage of construction and barring any shortage of materials or equipment 
should be available in the spring. 

As stated in previous annual reports. . some serious thought is going to have to 
be given to the sub-stations at Beechwood and North Cohasset. The structural 
features of these two buildings seriously limits the replacement and relocation of 
apparatus. The above inventory of apparatus indicates the age of the equipment 
in service and the need for replacement in the near future. 

STATIONS and EQUIPMENT 

The Tone Controlled Radio Receivers were purchased after preparation of 
specifications and public bidding. This system was put into service the latter part 
of 1973 and the results have been most satisfactory. As with any new system ad- 
justments and changes in procedure were necessary, but we were able to reach 



84 



the Call Firefighters quickly and more reliably. 

Five new units of self contained breathing apparatus were purchased after pre- 
paration of specifications and competitive public bidding. These additional units 
were required to meet the requirements of the General Laws. The reason behind 
this law was to help prevent the greatest source of injury to firefighters - smoke 
inhalation. With the increased use of plastics, foam rubber and other synthetic 
materials smoke and toxic gas generation has greatly increased. 

TRAINING 

During 1973 all of the permanent firefighters and officers, and several call 
firefighters and call officers completed training in Advanced First Aid conducted 
under the American Red Cross. 

Three fire department members. Firefighter Richard M. Conley, and Call Fire 
Captains Clifford J. Dickson and John M. MacNeill have attended and will com- 
plete in the near future the Emergency Medical Technicians training given at 
Milton Hospital. This is excellent training and of great value to the Town of Co- 
hasset. It is the intention of this department to have additional members take 
this training as it becomes available. 

The practice of in-service training was stopped during the period of road con- 
struction on Elm Street due to the uncertainty of response. During this same 
period and continuing to the present the construction at the rear of the Police 
and Fire Headquarters Building for the Housing for the Elderly has prevented any 
outside activity in the rear yard. 

SUMMARY of INCIDENTS 

AUDIBLE ALARMS 117 

STILL ALARMS 207

85 



Needless - Faulty Alarm or Sprinkler System 16 

Dewatering Boats and Basements '. . . . 31 

Broken Water Pipes, etc 9 

Electrical - Wires and Appliances 11 

Miscellaneous 19 

The number of False Alarms and Hoax Calls has been reduced again this year. 
1971 - 49, 1972 - 32, 1973 - 18. While the number is again reduced the per- 
centage is still too high. The continued cooperation of all citizens with the fire 
and poUce departments is required if the persons involved are to be apprehended. 
Remember, when the fire and poUce departments are involved with a false or 
hoax call you might require the services of either or both departments. 

GENERAL COMMENTS 

During the year the Fire Department lost the services of two members through 
retirement and one by death. 

Call Firefighter Norman J. Delaney passed away on September 15, 1973. 
Norman served the department and the Town of Cohasset with interest and de- 
sire for thirteen years. 

Call Fire Captain Charles W. Frates retired August 15, 1973 after serving the 
department and the Town of Cohasset for forty-three years. Captain Frates was 
an excellent firefighter and officer. 

Deputy Chief Cornelius J. O'Brien retired March 31, 1973 after serving the 
department and the Town of Cohasset for thirty-two years. He was appointed as 
a firefighter in 1941, a Captain in 1948, and Deputy Chief in 1956. He had the 
distinction of being the first permanent fire captain and the first permanent dep- 
uty chief. Deputy Chief O'Brien served the department and the Town of Cohasset 
with a great deal of zeal and devotion to duty. 

CONCLUSION 

In conclusion I would like to extend the thanks of this department to the 
citizens of Cohasset, the Board of Selectmen, the heads and members of all town 
departments and boards. 

To the Officers, Firefighters, Call Officers and Call Firefighters I would like to 
extend my sincere thanks and appreciation for performance of their assigned 
duties in a cooperative and diligent manner. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Charles Piepenbrink 
Chief of Fire Department

PERSONNEL COMMITTEE 

The Personnel Committee has met regularly on the second Tuesday of the 
month until November when it began meeting on the second Wednesday of the 
month and in addition as often as was necessary to take care of its business. 

The committee has met with all individuals and groups who have desired to 
discuss personnel problems. 

The committee has diligently sought to be fair and understanding in the dis- 
cussion of personnel problems and at the same time keeping in mind the overall 
problems of the town. 

During the year the Personnel Committee has compiled a major project with 
the compilation of a record system of every individual on the town's payroll, 
covering every phase of the employees employment. A master file of these re- 
cords is on file at the Town Hall, and each member of the committee has an iden- 
tical record. Keeping this record up-to-date is a constant effort and it is succeeding. 

We regret the resignations of Charles C. Ford and John MacNeill after giving 
the committee many hours of valuable time and experience. We thank them for 
their services. 

David Chittim succeeded Mr. Ford. Mr. James F. Kearney is succeeding 
Mr. MacNeill. 

The Personnel Committee is always available for meetings with individuals or 
groups who wish to discuss problems related to their employment with the town 
and we shall do our upmost to help them.

Correction to 1972 report: 854 adult nonfiction books purchased last year were 
not reported (error in addition) and are added above. Of the books purchased 
this year, 32% were paperbacks, quality and mass market. 

GIFTS: Many people are contributing used books and magazines, some of which 
the library keeps. The rest are put on the free exchange table, or in the Friends 
of the Library book sale, or forwarded to the Norfolk County House of Correc- 
tion. Sheriff Hedges has written several times expressing the appreciation of the 
men there, especially for outdoor and sports magazines. 

A number of individuals purchased new books and subscriptions, sometimes 
in memory of a loved one. An appropriate book plate is placed in such gift books. 
The librarian is glad to advise anyone who is considering such a gift. 

The following major gifts were made to the library: 
Friends of the Library: built-in bookcase in lobby $300 

printing and mailing new library brochure 380 

91 



Donald T. Gammons: 40 volumes added (1969-1973) to the music 

collection; valued at 564 

Alice Stewart Nisula: for a development fund 100 

Anonymous: McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of World Art, 

14 volumes 600 

Ron Beal: three pieces of library furniture, valued at 600 

FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY: This dues-paying voluntary association of 150 
members (all are welcome!), June Hubbard, President, chalked up another re- 
cord year in service to the community. In addition to the gifts mentioned above, 
the Friends contributed 1,862 hours (up 36% over last year) in the library assist- 
ing the staff. Committee chairman contributed additional time and talent in ar- 
ranging exhibits, conducting a successful book sale and auction, sponsoring eight 
children's film programs (average attendance, 67), eleven adult "classic film" pro- 
grams (average attendance, 26), and a program on wildlife photography presented 
by Dr. Uve Hublitz of Cohasset. 

FILMS: Library handling of 16mm films from the Regional Library System/ 
Boston Public Library increased greatly during the year. In addition to film pro- 
grams in the library, the library placed reservations and handled delivery of 53 
films to seven organizations. Total attendance at these film programs, by organiza- 
tion, was: Cohasset schools - 472; Community Center - 440; Cohasset Knoll - 206; 
others- 101. 

A YEAR OF EVALUATION: From the beginning of the year, the library trustees 
and the librarian have been looking at the library operation carefully to see what 
can be done about shortcomings that are limiting services. The trustees formed a 
subcommittee on long range planning which read material on library services and 
goals, and which met in several working sessions with the librarian. This subcom- 
mittee soon determined that immediate critical problems were: 1) inadequate 
shelving for the book collection, and 2) inadequate workspace for staff duties. 
The subcommittee submitted a written report to this effect to the library trustees 
for discussion and action. The solution the trustees arrived at, and will ask funding 
for in 1974, is to put new bookshelves and two work stations in the Art & Music 
Room (meeting room downstairs). We regret very much the necessity to sacrifice 
the library's meeting room where this year we have had movies, yoga classes, 
French classes for children, story hours, and numerous community group meetings. 
But the town has other meeting places, and the library needs the space for books. 

The librarian submitted several written memos and statements to the board 
throughout the year in an effort to sharpen our definition of what the public li- 
brary is all about. A report in August, "Deficiencies in Library Administration 
and Services and a Proposed Solution," tried to outline the improved and new 
services the library should be moving toward. The recommendations of that report 
will be given further study in 1974, and the long range planning committee will 
continue to study the direction the library should take beyond the immediate task 
of alleviating overcrowding of present book collection and staff activities. 

Citizens who are interested in these matters are cordially invited to express 
themselves in writing or in person to me or any member of the library board of

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF WATER COMMISSIONERS 

For the Year 1973 

The Town Meeting of March 1972 approved a total appropriation of 2.5 
milHon dollars for the construction of new water facilities. This amount will be 
reduced by 994,000 dollars from an approved H.U.D. Grant. Your Commissioners 
have, since that time, worked diligently with many other Federal and State 
Agencies to obtain all necessary approvals. Special legislation was enacted, ease- 
ment and management agreement worked out with the Department of Natural 
Resources and land acquisition are but a few of the problems that have faced the 
Board. At this writing, it appears, that these and many other obstacles have been 
overcome. Plans & Specifications are now being drawn and construction will 
begin by Fall of 1974. 

This being one of the wettest years on record, the Water Department was able 
to keep up with the demands on the system in spite of the continued growth of 
the Town. 

Our records show twenty one (21) new accounts being activated this year. 
Sixteen hundred and fifty feet (1650) of new 8" main and one thousand feet 
(1000) of new 6" main and six (6) new hydrants were added to the system by 
private developers. 

The total distribution of water for 1973 shows an increase of twenty two (22) 
million gallons over the preceding year. 

In early spring a professional leak survey was conducted and many otherwise 
undetected leaks were located and repaired, resulting in considerable saving of 
water. 

The system and the department buildings and property are continuously main- 
tained by department personnel and are in good condition. 

The financial condition of the department continues to be sound and operating 
within its revenue. 

The Board of Water Commissioners express their thanks, at this time, to all 
Town Officials, Department Heads, and Committees for their cooperation and to 
the Superintendent and personnel of the Water Department for their continued 
loyal support. 

Respectfully submitted,

1973 REPORT OF COHASSET'S REPRESENTATIVE TO THE 
SOUTH SHORE REGIONAL SCHOOL DISTRICT COMMITTEE 

Cohasset students continue to underutilize the opportunity to gain vocational 
knowledge and skills. Our share of a capacity enrollment of 340 boys has dropped 
from 12 to 8, four times less than permitted by our quota. It is hard to believe 
that the people of Cohasset have the idea that vocational training is degrading and 
an admission of failure. 

The proof of the success of this school is the placing of all graduates in jobs or 
further education, both of which utilize occupational competency developed at 
the school. The following Cohasset students graduated in June 1973: 

Sherwood C. Ainslie, III Mark Koopman 

Mark P. Delaney William E. Ricketts 

97 



In May agreement for a two year contract was reached with Local 1896, 
American Federation of Teachers (AFL-CIO) after 6 joint negotiating sessions 
with the committee and its attorney. The highlight is a 5.5% salary increase in 
September of 1973 and 1974 when the range will be $10,708 to $15,561 with 
an average of $13,985. 

Progress toward proposing a definitive plan of expansion including opportun- 
ities for girls has been slower than the committee desired. Contact has been made 
with the Commonwealth's Bureau of School Building Assistance and an architect 
has been hired on a limited consulting basis to analyze the capabilities of the 
school's grounds for handling additional sewage. Studies are being made to deve- 
lop data on area demands for various occupations. This is necessary to insure 
that there will be a job market for all programs after the school has expanded. 

During the current year the cornmittee began meetings with the instructors 
for each trade and associated members of the Industrial Advisory Board. We 
learned about the problems in the various shops and had first hand reports from 
the advisors on the relevancy of a teaching program to the actual job. In general, 
we have found great satisfaction with the skills and job attitudes of our graduates. 
Suggestions for areas of change or improvement have been useful to the com- 
mittee. 

Dana Green, a student from Cohasset, has been an active member of the stu- 
dent advisory committee, which attends the committee's meetings. 

Sports at Vo-Tech have had a good year. The soccer team was second in the 
South Shore Soccer League. Hockey participants are building a good group hav- 
ing a junior varsity for early preparation. Baseball, basketball and intramural 
sports give all boys a chance. Dancing, too, has many participants. 

The students have been active in helping the community. A great drive for 
clothing and food was held to help the Chelsea fire victims immediately after 
that disaster in October. 

In Hanover, the boys are building quarters for the Hanover Historical Society 
in the basement of the Curtis Free Library. In Norwell, in out of school hours, 
boys are continuing the work with South Shore Natural Science Center by cutting 
out trail paths. For Norwell's Tree Department and Abington's Park Department, 
large trailers have been built in the metal fab shops. In Abington, the electrical 
department wired the building of the Veterans' of Foreign Wars new building. In 
September of 1974, a home will be built on Country Way, Scituate. 

A student initiated Driver Education program' is in progress and is well at- 
tended with students paying a major part of the fee. Remedial reading under the 
able direction of Mrs. Portia Mears has proved invaluable. Personal health infor- 
mation and needs for the present and future lives of our young men are ably su- 
pervised by Paul Blanchard of the Physical Education Department and school 
nurse Mrs. Frances Molla. 

For September 1974, plans are being made for an Entry Skill Program for boys 

98 



who were unable to get into Vo-Tech because of lack of space or requirements 
for acceptance. Rockland, a member town has asked for such a program. In 1966, 
there was a similar program but it was not successful due to poor coordination 
among the towns. This program would be after regular school hours and to be a 
success it will require careful planning and cooperation by member town school 
administrations with this school. 

The slower and less than normal payment and general uncertainty of reim- 
bursements owed by the Commonwealth is becoming a serious financial problem. 
Unless payments resume their legal schedule there will be further burden on the 
property tax. At year end the Region claimed approximately $350,000 from the 
State. 

The school, located on Route 123 one mile west of Route 53, welcomes 
visitors. Plan a visit so you may better understand what a valuable asset we have 
available in our educational system. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Sumner Smith, Jr. 
Cohasset Representative 

REPORT OF THE RECREATION COMMISSION 

The Recreation Commission counts the summer program as its most success- 
ful accomplishment of the year. Thanks to the school department, the Osgood 
School was available for rainy day activities and access to the lavatories. 

Field trips this year included Edaville, a boat trip to George's Island and Fort 
Warren, Southwick Animal Farm and to Battleship Row in Fall River. 

Friday's were beach days and the Eddie Pellagrini - Coca-Cola - W.H.D.H. 
Baseball Clinic was held at Barnes Field. 

Once again the tennis program was most popular. A fee was charged to sup- 
plement the Recreation's budget. 

Evening basketball at the Osgood courts was well attended. It appears the in- 
stallation of lights has been worthwhile as young people are frequently using the 
courts. 

Band concerts were enjoyed by all ages even when moved to the high school 
due to rain. 

This spring should see the installation of lights and playground equipment at 
Milliken tennis courts. Our thanks to those who have given their time and know- 
ledge in making this possible. 

In the future we hope lights will be placed at the High School tennis courts. 
Cohasset is lacking in public courts and without lights the great number of people 

99 



interested in this sport cannot be accommodated during day light hours. We 
would also like to see a centralized recreation program encompassing all ages. As 
it stands now each activity is under a different organization.

SEALER OF WEIGHTS AND MEASURES 

I hereby submit my report as Sealer of Weights and Measures for the year 
ending December 31, 1973. 

A total of one hundred and twenty-five (125) weighing and/or measuring 
devices have been tested and sealed. 

The amount of One Hundred and Sixty Eight Dollars and Seventy Five Cents 
(168.75) for sealing fees was collected and paid to the Town Treasurer, Cohasset, 
Massachusetts.

REPORT OF THE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT 

Submitted herewith is the report of the Highway Surveyor for the year ending 
December 31, 1973. 

In 1973, the Highway Department experienced the high costs of doing business, 
road materials,, equipment rentals, and costs of repairs were some of the soaring 
items. The coming year does not look much brighter. 

The budget for 1974 will increase less than 2%. This will allow the department 
to operate about the same. 

The department followed its regular maintenance program. In the spring, 
streets were swept, basins cleaned, street lines painted, signs painted and repaired. 
The work on Redgate Lane was completed as well as the much talked about Elm 
Street. I wish we had 45 miles of road just like it. 

In 1974, the drainage system on Linden Drive will be started. New pipes and 
basins will be installed. 

The structure at Cat Dam should be started. The State Department of Water- 
ways is working on the engineering plans. The $14,000.00 should complete the 
job. 

100 



One and one half miles of mix in place was laid on various streets and private 
ways and 15,000 gallons of liquid asphalt was used to seal different roads. 

There are two articles pertaining to highways this year. One is the bond issue 
which the town has received. It is in the Treasurer's Office. The other will be an 
article on State Aid. This article, if accepted, will take the place of Chapter 90. 
The state abolished the Chapter 90 program and replaced it with a State Aid pro- 
gram. 

I wish to thank the men of the department, town officials and the citizens who 
have helped me during the year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Louis C. Bailey, Jr.

The role of public health is the protection of health and the promotion of 
human comfort and the well-being through control of man's environment. The 
population increase and the diversity of human activities which have accompanied 
that increase have intensified environmental control difficulties in those areas. The 
environmental and human problems during the decade have generated new laws 
and new concepts of basic health services, which have been taken for granted and 
were able to be postponed but are now mandatory. First of all we must operate 
our disposal area as a Sanitary Landfill operation. One of the provisions of Sec- 
tion 1 50A, Chapter 1 1 1 , of the General Laws of the Commonwealth of Massachu- 
setts states: "No Sanitary Landfill facility shall be hereafter constructed or opera- 

101 



ted unless the proposed use and the plans and design data therefore have been 
approved by the State Department of Public Heahh." 

In 1973 an engineering consultant was selected for the design of the Sanitary 
Landfill. The first phase of the project required a property line survey and topo- 
graphical survey, which are now completed. The design of the landfill utilizing 
the surveys is presently underway. Since the completed design will probably re- 
quire a substantial capital outlay and due to time limitations, we expect that the 
full operation as warranted by the engineering study will not be implemented 
until July of 1975. We would prefer that state wide funding and or programs be- 
come available to the local government to help defray the increase of expendi- 
tures anticipated.

The Cohasset Social Service League provides health care to all residents of Co- 
hasset on an intermittent basis. These services are delivered through skilled nursing 
care requiring specialized knowledge and judgment to maintain health and prevent 
illness. Under the direction of Mr. Campbell and the Board of Health, we have 
tested most of the food handlers in Cohasset for tuberculosis. The flu clinic was 
well attended by the Senior Citizens and apparently was worth while. The Senior

REPORT OF THE 
BOARD OF SEWER COMMISSIONERS 1973 

The Town of Cohasset in 1961 initiated a program for the development of a 
pubHc sewerage system with the submission of an engineering report to the Town. 
This report contained a phased program of sewer construction and treatment 
plant expansion to service the community's needs as well as alleviate numerous 
problem areas in Cohasset. To date, only a small portion (approximately 30 per- 
cent) of the original sewer construction program has been effected. The Town 
presently has approximately three (3) miles of sewers and a small (designed 
capacity of 72,000 gallons per day) biological waste treatment facility to provide 
treatment to waste water resulting from approximately 180 sewer service con- 
nections. This system has provided benefit to Cohasset by eliminating odor pro- 
blems in the village area, improving water quality James Brook and the inner 
harbor, and above all, is providing service to the residents of Cohasset. 

The Board of Sewer Commissioners has encountered an ever increasing involve- 
ment in the administration of the wastewater treatment system for Cohasset. Un- 
fortunately, major segments of the Town such as the Hillside Area, Route 3A 
Business Areas, the Sohier Street Area, and the Veterans Area, still remain as 
problem areas while the treatment facility will be at capacity when all 180 service 
connections are utilized. To service these areas, construction of eight (8) miles of 
sewers and a major treatment plant expansion will be required. 

The Board has presently under regulatory review a comprehensive plan for 
meeting the needs of Cohasset's future wastewater treatment requirements. Pro- 
gress in this area has been slowed by the enactment of the Federal Water Pollution 
Control Act Amendments of 1972. This law has required expansion and elabora- 
tion of the engineering report submitted in behalf of the Town to both State and 
Federal regulatory agencies. Although the intent of this act was to improve the 
nation's water quality, compliance with its ramifications has actually resulted in 
a slow-down in the construction of wastewater treatment systems. The Commis- 
sioners, recognizing the need for expeditious action on its program for Cohasset, 
have encountered delay primarily due to regulatory review as a result compliance 
with the aforementioned federal legislation. Such delay can only result in in- 
creases in construction costs, with, in all probability, no major changes in the plan 
for the wastewater treatment. 

This year the Board has reviewed and revised its rules and regulations concern- 
ing such areas as sewer connections, sewer use, and cost recovery. Of particular 
note in these revisions is a sewer use charge based upon the actual consumption of 
water in each home or business connection to the sewerage system. Although this 

105 



will not result in a self-sufficient operation of the waste treatment system, it 
does provide an equitable basis for charges for this Town service. Copies of 
these regulations may be obtained at the Sewer Department at 43 Elm Street. 

•The Town is presently undergoing review by the Federal Environmental Pro- 
tection Agency for a discharge permit which is required under the 1972 Federal 
Water Pollution Control Act Amendments. The Town is operating its wastewater 
treatment consistent with the expectations of performance of a well operated 
secondary or biological waste treatment plant. In fact, the level of effluent qual- 
ity exceeds the requirements for such publicly owned treatment works and the 
Board of Sewer Commissioners do not envision any problems in obtaining a dis- 
charge permit. It will require, though, continued support by the townspeople to 
maintain proper operation and maintenance of the system. Federal and State re- 
gulatory dictates are exerting an ever-increasing role in local management of 
wastewater systems and compliance with such is resulting in increasing operational 
costs. It is felt that the Town is applying the best practicable control technology 
for its wastewater management program and the expansion of the sewer system 
and continued application of effective secondary treatment will not impair the 
water quahty of Cohasset. 

This year has brought about a refinement and re-assessment of the treatment 
needs of Cohasset. 

It is hoped that the up-coming year will produce some definition in meeting 
these specific needs of the community.

REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE - 1973 

1973 was a busier and more complicated year for the School Committee than 
1972; most members of the Committee didn't think that would be possible. Some 
of the more important events of 1973 will be reviewed in this brief report. 

Superintendent James Gray continued his work to develop and maintain a 
first-rate learning program for the Cohasset schools. In this effort he and the 
School Committee encountered both support and resistance, resistance which 
at times reached a point where it disrupted the learning process. One such case 
occurred in early spring, when the School Committee reached a most difficult 
and controversial decision not to renew High School Principal Richard Streeter's 
contract. This decision was unpopular with many and unsettled the High School. 

To fill the position of high school principal the School Committee interviewed 
many impressive candidates. After thorough review the Committee voted unani- 
mously to appoint Mr. Gino DiGirolamo as Principal. The Committee felt that he 
was uniquely qualified because of his background (B.S. from Merrimac College 
and M.Ed, from Boston University), his teaching experience (four years as math 
teacher in New Britain, Connecticut; fourteen years as math teacher in Cohasset 
High School, seven of those years as department chairman and three as assistant 
principal), and his thorough knowledge of Cohasset High School's faculty and 
students. 

Another major decision, made by the School Committee in April, was to sep- 
arate the junior high school administratively from the senior high school. The de- 
cision followed from the fact that the junior high student is at a stage of physical 
and mental development when he needs an environment that will foster his own 
identity, difficult to achieve in a "mini high school." This view is supported by 
the Committee, the Administration, and many parents. Had the junior and senior 
high schools remained as a unit, enrollments would have been too large to contin- 
ue the individual attention expected by Cohasset parents. In addition, the faculty 
in recent years has increased to a size that makes it difficult for one administrator 
to conduct thorough and meaningful teacher evaluations. 

In September 1973 the Committee appointed Dr. George Richmond as junior 
high school principal. Dr. Richmond received his B.A. from Yale University, his 
M.A. from New York University, and his Ed.D. from Harvard Graduate School. 
His teaching experience has been varied. The Committee was confident that he 
could design a stimulating learning program for the seventh and eighth grades and 
develop a new school that would meet the needs of this age group. 

A significant achievement of 1973 was the reorganization and implementation 
of the special education program. One major goal was to identify students who 
actually or potentially had learning difficulties; another was to develop proper 
student remediation and evaluation programs. To accomplish these goals required 
staff reorganization, involvement of additional specialists, and development of 
teaching teams. These steps will lay the foundation for meeting the requirements 
of Chapter 766, effective September 1974. Through the reorganization of the 
special education services we increased the reimbursement from the State Depart- 

107 



ment of Special Education from $57,882 received in 1972 to $214,763 in 1973. 

During 1973 the school system was in the midst of a 2-year teachers' contract 
that has been in effect since September 1, 1972. Negotiations on the 1974 
teachers' contract were just beginning at the end of 1973. 

The current teachers' contract seems strongly favorable to Cohasset teachers 
when measured against contracts in many other towns throughout the State. Yet 
the Cohasset teachers managed to file eleven grievances under this contract. They 
made no real effort to settle the issues within the system, but proceeded to take 
the cases to binding arbitration. Through December all decisions have been ruled 
in favor of the School Committee. 

Among the cases that have been settled in favor of the Committee are: 

1. Group grievance — Right of the School Committee to eliminate the 
stipend and reduce the number of department chairmen and assistant 
principals. 

2. Teacher — Right of the Conimittee not to reappoint a nontenured teacher. 

3. Evaluation — Right of the Committee to adopt a faculty evaluation poHcy. 

4. Change in school calendar — Right of the Committee to designate the day 
for professional improvement. 

Unprofessional attitudes and action on the part of the Massachusetts Teachers' 
Association and the Cohasset Teachers' Association characterized much of 1973. 
The Massachusetts Teachers' Association attempted to pressure one School Com- 
mittee member to resign by threatening his livelihood. This kind of behavior pro- 
duced only conflict, unhappiness and a poor learning environment during the 
spring of 1973. The Committee feels that most Cohasset teachers are professionals 
who desire to do their very best. We hope that the attitude of these teachers will 
encourage the growth of a healthy educational environment. 

The Cohasset School Committee wants to assure a strong, vibrant, and rigorous 
educational program that will provide the best learning experience for each child 
for each dollar spent. Children are not all alike; each may need a different kind of 
stimulus to gain the most from an educational experience; each is an individual 
with his own abilities and needs. But there is one goal that is the same for all the 
students, and that is to maximize each one's learning experience in the Cohasset 
schools. If all the townspeople, not just a vocal few, take an active interest in the 
schools, then Cohasset can be assured of an excellent school system.

SUPERINTENDENT'S ANNUAL REPORT - 1973 

The schools were faced with some difficuU and far-reaching decisions during 
1973. The School Committee, in an effort to stem the spiralling costs of educa- 
tion, took measures to reduce expenditures before the budget was presented to 
the electorate. The reduction was affected by eliminating driver education at the 
Senior High School, elementary foreign language at the Deer Hill School, and the 
position of librarian at the Osgood School; by employing library technicians in- 
stead of teaching librarians in two schools; by developing a satellite feeding pro- 
gram, which eliminated four cafeteria employees; and by eliminating in the ele- 
mentary schools positions in the area of guidance, reading, learning disabilities 
and classroom instruction. 

The community, however, felt there still was not a sufficient check on the in- 
creased costs and requested at Town Meeting that further reductions be made. 
The School Committee followed through and recommended $102,000 in cuts. 
These were accepted by the Town. The cuts entailed the elimination of depart- 
ment chairmen in all departments with less than four teachers; standardized test- 
ing, except in alternate years, in the Senior High; instrumental music position; 
specialized services for the Child Study Team; one secretary and four teacher 
aides; and reductions in the athletic and student activities account. 

The problem of increased costs is still with us. As long as the support for 
schools rests chiefly on the property tax, it will continue to be a tremendous 
burden to the individual homeowner. As 1973 ended, the costs of materials and 
basic items such as paper, food, fuel oil and gasoline (if available) increased to as- 
tronomical figures; for instance, a barrel of oil costing $4.00 in January 1973 had 
increased to S8.00 a barrel in December 1973. These rising costs, on top of nego- 
tiated salaries for 80 percent of the school cost, require on the part of the com- 
munity some somber assessment to determine realistically what Cohasset wants 
for its schools and what it can afford. 

During 1973 the community and schools completed an appraisal of goals sug- 
gested by the State Board of Education. If the community's major goal for its 
students is the acquisition of knowledge and skills, then Cohasset rates average in 
some areas. But if Cohasset's objectives are aimed at the higher levels of cognitive 
development, that is, to have students who can think, analyze, evaluate, and con- 
struct new ideas and models, then serious gaps exist that will demand our atten- 
tion in the years ahead. We are concerned when the responses to one question in 
the goals survey, "What future and alternative programs would be developed 
should additional state funds be made available?" was simply "more of the same" 
or an expansion of existing programs. This philosophy cannot continue if Cohas- 
set is to meet its obligations to its children, the community, and society. 

Progress was made in the schools effort to provide for individual differences in 
students by considering multiple options for students, teachers, and parents. 
Changes were instituted to lay the foundation for a more personalized approach 
to education. The Osgood and Deer Hill Schools were reorganized into teaching 
teams to provide for the assessment of each student, thereby helping him make 
the most of his own capacities and interests. The student will be encouraged to 
assume increasing responsibility for making decisions about his own education. 

109 



New courses were introduced: "Man, A Course of Study", grades five and six 
social studies; Individualized Math System, grades three to six; extension of AAAS 
Science into grades five and six; Intermediate Science Curriculum Study in the 
Junior High; Prescribed Individual Learning System Math in the Junior High; 
expansion of Individually Guided Program, Senior High; introduction of Arts 
Advisory Council at Deer Hill; various mini courses, and a pilot program using a 
humanities approach to American studies, at the Senior High School. 

The approach to better budgetary procedures through a refinement of the 
Planned Program Budgeting Evaluation System was continued. Significant savings, 
approximately $2.00 on the tax rate, was achieved through this budgetary ap- 
proach in the state reimbursements received for the Child Study Team. The 
School Committee's policy of contracting services for music teachers, auto mech- 
anics, psychologists, social workers, and so forth, on an as-need basis rather than 
hiring personnel full time was the result of an analysis of program costs. By using 
the cost-comparative data from the P.P.B.E.S. budget, the School Committee is 
in a better position to make fiscal and program decisions and to formulate future 
policies. 

The second part of the 1973 school report is statistical and assumes meaning 
only as one compares it with data in other Cohasset annual reports. 

This year has been a stimulating one and I am deeply appreciative of the help 
and support from dedicated faculty members, the School Committee, and parents. 
I look forward to 1974. 

Respectfully submitted, 
James F. Gray

October 1 enrollment figures provide a means for comparing the school 
system's enrollment at a comparable time during any school year, but they do 
not provide an accurate description of the overall enrollment pattern. A more 
precise representation can be obtained by using a statistic called the Average 
Daily Membership (ADM). This is obtained for any given year by adding the ag- 
gregate number of days of attendance of all students to the aggregate number of 
days of absence of all students and dividing that sum by the total number of days 
that school was in session. The ADM for the two preceding school years are pro- 
vided in Table 3. These figures include both resident and non-resident (METCO) 
students.

REPORT OF THE SCHOOL FACILITIES COMMITTEE FOR 1973 

In June, 1972, a special Town Meeting appropriated $25,000 for preliminary 
plans for a new elementary school. The architectural firm of Earl R. Flansburgh & 
Associates worked with the School Facihties Committee, Superintendent James F. 
Gray, and the School Committee in planning that would implement the School 
Committee's educational specifications. It was decided to plan a new facility as 
part of a campus-type development incorporating the Deer Hill School. 

This planning was effectively terminated in February, 1973, when the Massa- 
chusetts School Building Assistance Bureau ruled that no further planning would 
be permitted until a bond issue for a sewer line to the Deer Hill site had been 
voted by the Town Meeting. The SBAB is the state agency that approves use of 
state funds in public schools. 

The Sewer Commissioners have reported that the earliest possible date that 
they will be prepared to request approval of a bond issue for the construction of 
this sewer line will be late 1974 to early 1975. Therefore, the School Facihties 
Committee can proceed no further at this time. 

Crowding at the elementary level continues to be a pressing problem for Co- 
hasset. In addition to long inadequate space for classroom use and many supportive 
services, cafeterias have been converted to classroom use, with the result that chil- 
dren now eat lunch at their desks in both elementary schools.

REPORT OF THE TOWN ACCOUNTANT 

To the Board of Selectmen 

and the Citizens of the Town of Cohasset: 

Submitted herewith is my annual report in accordance with Section 61 of 
Chapter 41 of the General Laws of Massachusetts for the year ended December 
31, 1973. 

The report consists of the following schedules: 

(1) Statement of receipts and expenditures 

(2) Summary of appropriations and other accounts 

(3) Balance Sheet- General Accounts 

(4) Balance Sheet- Deferred Revenue Accounts 

(5) Trust Funds in Custody of Treasurer 

(6) Statement of Town Debt 

The books and records of the town were examined by auditors from the 
Bureau of Accounts of the Department of Corporations and Taxation. The audit 
covered the period January 1, 1972 to September 30, 1973. The last audit in- 
cluded the transactions thru April 30, 1969. Generally the auditors begin their 
audit examination from the last date of the previous audit. The books and records 
have been found in excellent condition, therefore precluding the necessity of 
auditing the last eight months of 1969, years 1970 and 1971. A copy of their de- 
tailed report will be on file in the Selectmen's office when the report is received. 

Respectfully submitted, 

William S. Signorelli 
Town Accountant
